About Kathy

30 Years Experience Caring For Dogs

PLEASE NOTE: I require all dogs to be up-to-date on core vaccines (rabies/distemper) as well as bordetella and that they regularly use flea and tick products (including during winter months). A copy of their vaccination record will be requested. Unaltered (not spayed/neutered) pets are acceptable if they are less than 6 months old.

DROP-OFF TIMES: Flexible (early morning acceptable).

PICK-UP TIMES. Please plan to pick-up by 1:00 PM. Later pick-up times will require adding $20 to the reservation for daycare services.

Hello there!

I'm married with 2 teenage children (ages 16 & 17). I'm retired and my husband works from home so someone is always here to supervise the animals in our home. We have 4 rescue dogs of our own and 2 ragdoll cats. Our animals are very well socialized because they have been exposed to many dogs of all different ages and sizes. I have cared for a significant number of puppies and I have no issues having puppies in my home who may still require potty training.

I have been a volunteer with a licensed K9 rescue organization for over a year. I foster dogs for them (over 100 have been cared for in my home!), conduct adoption interviews and I am also the animal vetting records coordinator. I LOVE spending my time taking care of dogs - I feel like I have finally found my life's passion!

We have a very large and securely fenced yard (about 40,000 sq ft) and live at the end of a cul-de-sac. Behind my property (accessed from my yard) is a secluded road through the woods leading to the water shed area and it is a beautiful place for long nature walks, which take us around the lake (rarely are there vehicles as it is restricted to logging access). Weather permitting, I like to spend a lot of time outside. When inside, pet guests have access to the main level of my home...typically spending the most time in the family room, kitchen and office.

I believe that dogs should spend their days playing and having fun and I enjoy making sure that they do that in a safe and loving environment. Thank you for taking the time to read a little about me - I hope to have the opportunity to care for your pets in the near future!

Best,
Kathy

Kathy is our go-to person to care for our pup, when we are out of town. She is awesome!
After a thorough Meet and Greet, we realized we had found the perfect dog sitter. Kathy genuinely cares about dogs; their health, safety, and happiness. Her resident dogs are very friendly and our dog, Emerson, loved hanging out with them. Kathy has the perfect set up, with a huge, safely-enclosed backyard and a warm, welcoming home environment. Emerson was treated like part of her family. We loved getting text updates and pictures, and we would not hesitate to use Kathy's excellent services again.

I'm such a nervous dog mama but Kathy is fantastic, and so is her family. I was totally at ease leaving my pup with her! And her rates are super reasonable. Thank you so much Kathy!
